Apparently they are not really advanced at all except in a very concentrated part of Tokyo. More image than anything. According to Cracked (which linked to other articles), Japan is on the whole technologically backwards and kind of hostile to foreigners. Also, apparently no air conditioning even where it's really needed, and their hospitals are closed on weekends, even most emergency services.

No thanks.

From what I heard, Japan was very friendly to foreigners. That is retarded though that there is no emergency services on weekends and evenings. Is that all of Japan which does that?

But I do love those whacky TV shows.

Probably Venice because of these reasons and the fact that the city is spread out over several islands.

Italy

Awesome food
Cool history
Nice weather
Beautiful scenery
Sweet architecture
Boot shaped
Hot womenz


Or somewhere in Germany if I had to live there and get a job.

Having just come back from China, I wouldn't mind living there. More specifically, Hong Kong. Now China is actually getting very advanced technologically and in infrastructure, but HK just takes the cake. The entire skyscraper laden city is a goddamn lightshow every night, synced up to music. There is citywide wifi no matter where you are. It's generally clean and lively as shit. Like NYC on steroids.

Pros:
-awesome city raving every night
-awesome cheap food
-never run out of things to do
-nice people, pretty chill
-the part of China that doesn't have shitty censored internets

Cons:
-extremely high cost of housing
-Cantonese (worst language ever) and British English (2nd worst language ever)

Here are a few pics I took:

Venice looks lovely.
Germany has a good economy, but I don't love the language so it would be less fun to learn.


Hey, guys.

Hong Kong looks ****ing incredible but I can't say I want to live there. Partially because there are other places I'd already want to live, but mostly because I'm a Westerner and would never fit in (not even partially) and I'm not educated enough on the place. I would love to visit though. I have a thing for cities with giant cities and bright lights.

Uh...

Hong Kong is like the most westernized part of China. There are lots of foreigners there. Have you forgotten it was occupied by the British? It is also tri-lingual. Most people know mandarin, cantonese, and english. I could get by just fine speaking only English (although my mandarin doesn't hurt).

Probably either the south of Spain or the Amalfi coast in Italy. I've been to Italy and I really enjoyed that area. The food, the people, and the weather are all great. I would probably like Spain for similar reasons although I've never been. I'm a fan of the sea as well. Also, I speak a bit of Spanish so that might help.

I'm aware of all of that (British English is great by the way) but I'm sure the little aspects of daily life are things I couldn't just adapt to. That ties in with being uneducated, so I may be wrong entirely.

I think I would love to try living in Hong Kong. It has been a dream of mine for a while. Or at least going there on holiday - but like a rich persons holiday, with penthouses and helicopters and speedboats and shit, not a poor persons holiday, the type I can't even afford.
I like a bustling, vibrant city and a bright skyline at night. Looks like a dream.

Seeing those pictures of its recent flooding and tourists in the streets made me want to go even more. I also like the narrow streets and architecture. Doesn't seem safe when I put it that way, but it's got that personality. And German is an awesome language. It's even better when it comes from a woman (like any other language).

Yea, crazy bustling and vibrant metropolis is my ideal environment.

Fuck this suburb nonsense. Worst idea ever made. Someone even gave a TED talk about how detrimental suburbs are to society.

Suburbs are awful. I can't think of a single good thing they do for society. And if there is one, I'll just dismiss due to my confirmation bias.

Large cities are my thing, but legitimate small cities (I'm thinking around 40,000) that aren't built with suburbs and urban sprawl in mind are good in their own way.

Edit: Assuming I stay in America I've put serious consideration into becoming an urban planner.

Oh yea, big, small, doesn't matter. Cities are the way to go. Anything but goddamn suburbia.

I would ****ing hate to live in the city

Ther're so loud and dirty and there are too many ****ing people, most of who are gross.

Is it fun to go into and do things? Hell yea

But live? Not my thing at all.

I'm kinda in the middle ground though. I can be in the middle of the city in 20 minutes by train or car if I wanted to.

Maybe that's why I feel that way. Best of both worlds


I like being outside with grass and trees and places to bike and stuff

Spain man.

But like, you'd need, like, at least 3000 euros a month there to live awesomely. Problem being the high unemployment and all that.

But hell man, nice beaches, nice food, nice weather, nice architecture, different language.

Imagine having a nice house with a pool there, close to a big city like Barcelona or some shit.

That'd be the life of puta madre.

large city life for most of your life would suck ass. the suburbs are safe, quiet, clean, and just generally better places to raise a family. if you want entertainment you can take a train into the city.

Okay-

Which country would you chose to move to, if getting a job was a concern. So it must have an attractive economy, one in which you feel you could prosper. You haven't won the lottery.
Luxury doesn't mean shit if you cant afford to take advantage of it, you peasant.


Oh. Well. I'd try Norway. They have high salaries (expensive country too).

But I'd just save up as much money as possible and then retire in Spain.

If I want safe and quiet I'll live in a rural town (I don't mean a random house in the middle of no where just so we're clear). Suburbs are detrimental to society and capture the true essence of neither urban or rural environments. Really they're just sad and lonely (although they are safe).

Yeah I'm enjoying it. Poor urban planning is one of the worst aspects of North America. When I say it it sounds like a first world problem (which it is) but he explains it better.

I guess because they don't encourage a sense of community, people often don't mingle with their neighbours.

because they're not places worth caring about, which has wide reaching consequences.

More than that, there is no culture or activity. Think of the worst of American suburbia in the midwest. What's the image? Obese Christian conservatives without any sense of culture or intellect. Place has a big role in harboring all of these issues.

Urban sprawl and poor urban planning is the main reason why. Suburbs tend to take up way more space than they need to, are built wherever people feel like, make it impossible to not own a car, etc.

And again, it's a bit first world problem-ish, but as the TED speaker pointed out, they're not worth caring about. The closest thing to a public centre here is the local Wal-mart. It's a safe, but at the same time sad environment.

I live in a small suburb just outside of a gated community, and the next nearest suburbs are three miles away. None of these places have a community centre of any sort.

How do cities do that?

Everyone I know who has lived in a city hated every single person around them.

um, I think it's a bit different here...

Because I live in a suburb and it sounds nothing like that. Every town is connected. I guess because they're older maybe


Also, what do you mean by community or public center?

The TED video explains how that's largely an American problem. Although it doesn't apply to all American cities and there are places outside of America I could say the same about.

Basically our cities (with some exceptions) are built like suburbs; no community centre, too spread out, and not worth caring about.

Maybe you should just watch the video lol.

Anyways, it's a largely US problem. Boston and NYC (Manhattan anyway) got it right. That is to say they're on par with developed places in other countries. That's kind of sad.
